Neurosurgery care at Geisinger

When you need a neurosurgeon, our compassionate team is here for you every step of the way. From common to complex neurological conditions, our neurosurgery team uses the latest imaging technology and treatment methods — including minimally-invasive surgery and laser surgery, intra-arterial catheterization for blood pressure monitoring and neuromodulation to monitor nerve activity during surgery — to provide you with a comfortable experience and quicker recovery, so you can return home as soon as possible.

Because neurological conditions can affect different areas of your life and body, we work closely with other departments and specialists to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible. Some of the teams we work with include:

Personalized approach to care

Through cross-department conference boards and clinics, we collaborate with experts in other fields to create a personalized approach to your care. You'll also work with a nurse navigator and care management specialist as part of your care team to help provide a holistic approach to your condition and treatment. 

While you'll have access to clinical research trials, we also partner with research specialists for initiatives like MyCode, which analyzes your DNA for genetic changes that can help your doctors with your diagnosis and treatment.

Relief from back pain 

Back pain can be the result of many things, from aging and poor posture to herniated discs or past trauma. When at-home or non-invasive treatments haven’t helped, our spine surgeons can. They’ll create a custom treatment plan, which may include laser and minimally invasive surgery.

Acute stroke care that saves lives

When minutes count, our stroke recovery team acts fast to get you emergency care. We’re recognized nationally as a leader in stroke care, and we partner with community emergency medicine responders to make sure you get the best treatment from the onset of your symptoms.
